Financing and liability management developments

IFLR, Morrison & Foerster, HSBC
Financial regulatory reform legislation requires Federal banking agencies to establish minimum leverage and risk-based capital requirements. The legislation will effect a number of important changes for insured depository institutions and bank holding companies.

Topics will include:
•changes effected by legislation, including minimum leverage capital and risk-based capital requirements;
•the Basel III process;
•a review of hybrid securities (tax characteristics, legal form, ratings treatment);
•effect of Dodd-Frank and Basel III on certain instruments, like trust preferred securities and other innovative hybrids;
•contingent capital;
•effect of these developments on ratings for financial institutions;
•addressing outstanding hybrid securities;
•tax considerations; and
•consent solicitations, remarketings and exchange offers and other liability management options.

  • Desktop computers have been in existence for over 30 years, but the innovation in the last 10 years has fundamentally transformed the way we use them. The desktop is now increasingly found in the cloud, thanks to the technological advancements leading to the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). While VDI has been in existence for the past 8 years or so, it has become more relevant in the banking and insurance industries in recent years. Insurance agents and Wealth Managers work in a heavily regulated industry. While adhering to heavy regulations, the Insurance Agents and Wealth Managers have a critical need to access important information in real time to better serve their clients.

    Now with VDI they’re able to break free from the limitations of the traditional infrastructure, being able to access real time information any time anywhere, enabling them to focus on their clients’ needs. Join us in this session to learn from Craig Beattie from Celent and Muthu Somasundaram from VMware, how VDI has helped accelerate the pace of innovation in the Insurance and Wealth management industry, while maintaining compliance with all regulations.
  • Alternative payment options, including mobile payments and virtual currencies, are gaining traction among consumers. Smartphones and other mobile devices are increasingly used to make payments to businesses and other consumers. Banks and non-bank providers of payment services that seek to innovate in the mobile space are well served by considering the vast regulatory regime that applies to consumer payments.

    Virtual currencies also introduce legal considerations for banks and other entities active in the space. For example, anonymity – viewed as central by some to virtual currency transactions – creates particular challenges, such as the risk of money laundering, for banks and other regulated entities (eg non-bank money transmitters).

    This webinar will provide an overview of the legal issues related to mobile payments and virtual currencies, highlighting trends in the market and related regulatory developments.

  • Dodd Frank: recap and what’s next? Recorded: Jan 6 2015 90 mins
    Over four years have passed since enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act in the US. Most of the significant regulations required to implement the mandate of the Act have been finalized. But the devil is in the details….

    Implementation of many of the final rules is only just beginning. During this webcast, the speakers will review the principal actions taken by the banking agencies and other US regulators during 2014, with a special focus on those measures having greatest impact on non-US banks doing business in the country.

    We also will focus on the thorniest implementation questions and highlight the regulations that must still be finalized. The speakers will address:

    •The Volcker Rule and related implementation questions,
    •Treatment of covered funds under the Volcker Rule,
    •The final capital rules for US banks and the intermediate holding company framework for foreign banks,
    •The cross-border derivatives rules,

  • Green bonds and social impact investing Recorded: Dec 9 2014 88 mins
    Many investors are increasingly seeking to align their financial goals with their social objectives. Various legal entity structures have evolved, such as benefit corporations.

    Similarly, certain financial instruments have developed that may be structured in order to align financial and social goals. An example of these trends can be seen in the development of the market for green bonds, which has grown as issuers of debt securities reach a broader investor audience that seeks to promote sustainability and related initiatives.

    The session will provide an overview of the green bond market, the considerations in structuring and offering green bonds, and the disclosure and reporting requirements. In addition, the speakers will provide an overview of the Green Bond Principles.

    The Green Bond Principles are best practices for issuances and outline an approach for designating, disclosing, managing, and reporting on the proceeds of a Green bond.

  • Moving away from the C-corporation: understanding REITs, MLPs, PTPs, and BDCs Recorded: Nov 11 2014 94 mins
    Traditionally, most public companies in the US were organised as C-corporations. However, tax developments in recent years have given corporate planners a wide range of new tools to structure a public company. For example, tax pass-through MLP and REIT structures are spreading into new asset classes. Also, traditional double taxed ‘C’ corporations are using tax pass-through entities, including REITs and partnerships, to reduce or eliminate entity-level taxes as well as optimise their internal structures with tax ‘disregarded entities’. These new tools lead to a variety of tax choices in deciding how to structure a public company.

    During this briefing, which is intended for a general audience, the speakers will explain the structures, restrictions and pitfalls in this evolving hybrid world of C-corporations mixed with tax pass-throughs. Specifically, they will discuss:

    - master limited partnerships
    - REITs and alternative assets that may qualify as ‘real estate’
    - using REITs to unlock real estate currently held in corporate form
    - Business development companies
    - Consolidated groups of corporations and disregarded entities
    - Up-C structures

  • The Volcker Rule Recorded: Feb 28 2014 90 mins
    On December 10 2013, the five US bank regulators issued the long-awaited final rule construing the Volcker Rule.
